Onya Pete!Sal ‘The Muz” Brizzi one-putted his way to a count-back win in A Grade, beating JJ Harney whose fitness waned over the last few holes.‘Mr Consistent’ finished six points clear of Seesa in B Grade, whilst the Coveted Compass Cap was gleaned by Alan Taylor who accepted the award ever so graciously.A Flight (0–23)1st Sal Brizzi (7) 35pts2nd JJ Harney (10) 35pts3rd Kev Waycott (10) 33pts4th John Davis (15) 32ptsB Flight (23+)1st Gary Monley (29) 38pts2nd Seesa (26) 32pts3rd Kurt Persson (26) 31pts4th Sandy Leiper (32) 31ptsNear Pins: 5th John Davis; 7th JJ Harney; 13th Ebrahim; 15th Peter GreyLong Putts: 9th Seesa, 18th Jason SchembriNote:  The Growling Swan is a friendly PSC Golf outlet and welcomes all golfers for a fun day out.  We generally play Mondays and Thursdays with buses mostly departing at 8.30 am.  Please contact Peter Grey on 0861 503086 if you are interested in a game.The Growling Swan also caters to the lawn bowling enthusiasts.  Bus transport leaves the Swan at 10.00 am to play at Coco’s under cover synthetic lawn bowls on Sundays and at the Retreat Lawn Bowls grass greens on Wednesdays also departing at 10.00 am.  The cost including bus transport, green fees and hot lunch is less than four hundred baht, so great value for a day out.  Please contact Paul Rennison on 0843 454005 if you would like to come along. PSC Golf from The Growling SwanMonday, Jan. 12, Pattaya C.C. – StablefordTwenty seven combatants set out today with the weather looking as if it was going to be on our side.  After a short bus trip we arrived to find the old club house still in use, with no date given as to when the new one will be in operation.  I have to say we were greeted by the friendliest staff I have ever encountered and nothing was a problem, which was very refreshing. We hit the tee boasting two grades and found the course still a little underdone, with tricky greens, pin placements a bit tough and dry fairways.  Overall, if they get things right (and I am sure they are heading in the right direction), booking and getting on this course will be harder than picking Saturday night’s Tattslotto numbers.(From left) Sal Brizzi, Alan Taylor and Gary Monley.last_img read more

See what West Indies sensation Andre Russell used to do to ‘look sexy for…

Powered by Firework Its a well known fact about Andre Russell that he is a muscle freak. Frequently seen pumping iron and performing exercise, the Jamaican superstar cricketer is famous among his fan base for his passion to look superb as well as play superb. Hailed as one of the greatest T20 cricketers of all time, the West Indies all rounder however, did a mistake during his early training days, neglecting leg exercises. Reason? He wanted to ‘look sexy’ for the women.Advertisement Image Courtesy: ESPNcricinfo/GettyKnown for his less use of footwork on the pitch, knee problems have caused Russell to drop out of matches time and again. In a recent interview, the 31 year old revealed that back in his younger days, he only trained his upper body, because he thought it would make him more appealing to girls.Speaking to Gulf News, Russell addressed his younger generation of cricketers, who are looking to get into bodybuilding or muscle training. He mentioned that a full body workout is needed to look good, and also to not skip leg days.Advertisement “I want the youngsters to know that guys should not just think about the upper body alone. I used to go to gym and just work only on my abs and my shoulders because I wanted to look sexy for the girls.” Russell told reporters.The problems of skipping leg training slowly creeped up on Russell: “By the time I reached my late twenties I started feeling the pain like I never felt before. The wear and tear began to show up. If I was doing those strengthening exercises like training of the legs and doing the right things, I would have been fitter.”Advertisement Currently playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL, Russell sets the spectators on a frenzy with gigantic over boundaries. But, he lamented that having a stronger lower body would have been better for his career.He continued: “At the end of the day being sexy and then your legs being weak, don’t work. So it is very important to have a complete work out of the body. I could have done more wonders had I worked on my legs too.”“I have been struggling with my knees and I cannot really get to do what I want to do in the middle but still I can stand and hit the balls for fours and sixes,” Russell added.However, these days Russell is seen concentrating on his legs.Also read-Andre Russell says he is happy when people call him superheroYuvraj Singh amazed by Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah’s six pack abs Advertisementlast_img read more
